Students Connect with Local Businesses and Relative of Local Legend

Mrs. Locke’s 4th grade class at Dewey Elementary recently enjoyed a visit from Gordon Hill, the grandson of local hero and early “western” movie star Tom Mix.  Mr. Hill resides in Austin, Texas and visited Dewey’s Tom Mix Museum in November.  While at the museum, Mr. Hill discovered a “QR code” on display at th

e exhibit.  Scanning the QR code allowed him see a video about Tom Mix and the Tom Mix Museum.

In 2015, Dewey Elementary School received a grant from the Oklahoma Educational Technology Trust.  With it, the school was able to purchase 120 Ipads with a goal of enhancing learning through the use of technology. The initial focus was on teacher collaboration, shared values, and authentic teaching, but for 2016-2017 the Elementary School added community connections to their focus.  As a result, groups of students in 3rd through 5th grade began a collaborative project with local businesses.  Students chose businesses from the community to learn about, then created video presentations about the businesses.  Students created large QR codes and posters for the businesses to display making it easy for patrons to scan and watch the videos.  The QR code and video Mr. Hill watched were produced by Mrs. Locke’s 4th class as part of this project.

Mr. Hill contacted the school and requested a personal visit to Mrs. Locke’s class in order to express his family’s gratitude for the video they created.  Mr. Hill thanked the students for their work and gave of them an autographed copy of a famous chalk drawing of Tom Mix. The drawing was done the day before Tom Mix’s unexpected death in a car wreck in 1940.

Lady Dogger Volleyball Wins on "Pink Out" Night

The Lady Doggers hosted Oklahoma Union for its annual Pink Out game. After losing the first set, Dewey rallied back to win a close five set match.  Thanks for showing your support for them, and for Christian Smith, Dewey 1st grader.  This year's effort raised more than $1800 dollars.



Congratulations to Tanya Moody!!

Dewey Public Schools Teacher of the Year

Dewey Public Schools would like to congratulate Tanya Moody, 2nd grade teacher, on being selected as Dewey Public Schools 2016 Teacher of the Year. Tanya has been teaching at Dewey since 1999 and taught at Bowring Public Schools prior to that. Tanya received the selection by first being honored by her peers in the elementary school as their teacher of the year. After that honor, Tanya was chosen by a committee as the district teacher of the year among 3 candidates, Travis Ruble (MS) and Dan Close (HS). Tanya states that her family most influenced her to become a teacher, specifically her grandmother and aunt. She has earned a Master’s Degree in Reading and is National Board Certified. Tanya believes the best best way to strengthen and improve the teaching profession is to continually try to improve herself as an educator.
